| From Maple Valley catalog, 1949:THREE OAKS (W. 1943) No. 4110 (MATULA X CHINA MAID) Midseason. 38 inches. A sister seedling of TEA ROSE but much larger, darker and more heavily infused with copper. It is close to copper rose in Dictionary of Color or Etruscan red in Ridgway. A large and pronounced blue blaze on the fall gives it distinction. The branching is rather close to the very strong stems so that it is more effective in a clump than as a single stalk. Very strong heavy plants bloom and increase generously. Pollen parent of CAMPFIRE GLOW and GYPSY ROSE. H.M. 1945. R. 88. 312946. $21.00.
| From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: THREE OAKS (Whiting) An exceptionally beautiful blend of mallow pink and copper with a blue blaze below the beard. The sturdy flowers are large and flaring. A show specimen in any garden. 3 feet. $4.00; 3 for $10.00.
